A genial Bobby Jon claims that the day is "about fellowship." And that is a guy who has spent a lot of time in church, because I know no other setting where the word "fellowship" is used so often in this kind of context. He spins a weird yarn about how ancient Maya leaders used to smoke together and visit and so forth, and he really should have stuck with "fellowship." Because I can believe he knows how to draw parallels with Sunday afternoon spaghetti feeds a lot more easily than I can believe he knows how to draw parallels with ancient civilizations. Jamie sits grumpily by the side of the pool. Hey, every party has a pooper. He tells us he was just observing, seeing whether Amy and Gary were with their current tribe, or whether they were waiting for the merge to get back with their original tribe. He also thought Stephenie might be getting along too well with everyone, which is a little funny, given the public perception of her these days. In any event, Judd has certainly resolved not to have a good time, so there appears to be no danger whatsoever of that.
Finally, it's time for Nakum to go home, and Steph interviews that Jamie was a little aggressive about suddenly announcing that he wanted to leave. She tells him as the group gets in the boat that she thinks his behavior came off "shady," and he tells her he'll like everyone after the game is over. He interviews that they stayed too long, and goes back to complaining that it was "too friendly" and so forth. I really don't understand what kind of voodoo vibes Jamie is thinking are going to be worked by people like...Brandon. You know? Anyway, as they paddle, Steph and Jamie continue to bicker a little, him telling her he's sticking to "the plan," and her telling him that it's not like she's not sticking to the plan just because she had a good time at the party. Steph tells us that she sometimes doesn't really understand Jamie's behavior. "There could be a clash between he [sic] and I [sic]."
Later, at Yaxha, late on Day 18, the group is hanging out in the pool. And in what is...seriously maybe the grossest thing ever on this show -- yeah, I said it -- we see that Bobby Jon is using his submerged open wound to attract minnows, which he is then trying to grab out of the water with his mouth. Oh, I'm not kidding. I sort of feel myself tilting back and forth from side to side trying not to pass out, even though I am seated. Seriously, y'all, I think I'm traumatized by that. That is so disgusting I may not be able to attract fish with my own oozing sores and then eat them raw ever again.
